Sebastien Bassong has revealed that Premiership football is the main reason he wants to leave Newcastle.

The defender has already undergone a medical at Tottenham ahead of a £9million switch to White Hart Lane.

Bassong told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle: “Playing for Newcastle was a real honour in front of the supporters at St James’s Park.

“It has been an unbelievable experience for me.

“But I have always said that I wanted to play in the Premier League and that wasn’t possible with Newcastle.

“It was not good for my career to be at a Championship club. I want to play in future World Cups and African Cup of Nations competitions with Cameroon.

“That is made more difficult if you are not playing at the higher level.”
